Soon after I began learning to draw, I discovered online art tutorials. Not long afterward, I learned that some tutorials are better than others, and quite frankly, some instructors are better than others.
Over the last few years, I’ve watched a lot of art demonstrations. At times, I’ve become so frustrated that I’ve wiped away all I was doing, shut off the video, and moved on to a different project. Rarely have my “finished painting” results come anywhere close to the artist’s illustrations. As often as not, though, that’s my fault, not an indication of the instructor’s teaching abilities.
And, let’s be honest here about teaching. It’s not easy. Some artists are good at explaining techniques; others… not so much. Today I want to highlight an excellent online instructor and share a few thoughts about why her watercolor workshop was such a pleasure.
